Putting The Season's Bounty To Good Use

(Cross-Posted on Guess Who's Coming To Dinner)

At least insomnia is good for something.

I was unable to sleep last night so I began trolling the internet at 3 a.m. (the internet never sleeps....) for something new and different to make for the shalom zachor of a very good friend who just had her FIFTH (!!!) boy. I chanced upon this post over at Life In the Carpool Lane: CHOCOLATE DIPPED CLEMENTINES. What a deceptively simple, yet elegant idea! And to make matters even better, clementines which are abundant right now, also happen to be on sale this week for $4.99 a box.

Here is my adaptation of her recipe:

semi-sweet chocolate chips
sweetened shredded coconut
  • Peel and section the clementines
  • Melt good quality chocolate over a double boiler and stir
  • Dip each clementine section halfway into the melted chocolate and then in a bowl of shredded coconut
  • Put the pieces on wax paper in the fridge to set
These taste as good as they look, and they look like something you might find in a gourmet shop.

Hey, I happened across this blog, and I just wanted to say that I tried this recipe on Shabbat. I thought 200 pieces would be enough, but they were all gone in a few minutes! They were such a big hit that I'm making them again this week for a party. Thanks! :)
